NWN Ideas, Suggestions, Requests / Re: Luring

The general rule on "exploiting mechanics" covers luring.

Quote from: Dorganath
Unfortunately, due to game mechanics, there's a very fine line between "smart tactics" and "abuse of AI".
  Picking one creature at a time out of a group because of perception limits is borderline abusive at best. Bringing the whole spawn into an ambush can be considered smart tactics. Getting creatures trapped by geographic features is abuse of AI. I think you can see a pattern emerging.  :)
  The best gauge here is common sense. Or perhaps a simple question: Does this feel wrong or like cheating?
  If the answer there is "yes" then you probably should not be doing it.

Any who are looking for a scapegoat may be disappointed to find the giant who was seen in the vicinity of the incident has left town. Or, of course, they may find that significant.

Would it be helpful to catalog which pages these errors are occurring on?

*A weary Pallena turns to Zahid, grunting softly, then looks around to ensure there are none within earshot*

Misguided fools though they may be . . . or were - I assume with that bunch attacking, they left nothing alive - if Nature graced them with her powers, then doubtless they were doing what their misled little brains thought was in the best interest of Nature. I suppose there's always the possibility that their minds were quite literally poisoned by the cult, but its equally possible they simply believed adventurers are unnatural forces that muck up the desert. *shrugs, then looks over where the hill used to be*

*She pauses* Do you never wonder why Rhizome never gives widespread orders on these things? He respects us enough to know that we will follow our own beliefs, and that we know our own lands. Or seas, as the case may be. The order the East Druid was unusual... he was probably just desperate. And he saw the folly of his ways, and loosened the reins enough for you to have no doubts about your actions here. We are given a large dose of autonomy for a reason. Even the Great Oak's children disagree about how to protect nature. Small wonder that we do. But the hierarchy accommodates that.

*grunts* I s'pose to answer your question directly, if they are not rogues, whoever stands above them in the hierarchy will want to know that they will need to find replacements, and if they are, can't hurt to pass the word along.

*Takes a deep breath, and places her hands on a palm tree* If you have more questions, you know how to find me. *With that, she taps into the tree's life-thread, and disappears*

Right. We need to get to Xora then. If we find a tree in this desert, I can walk to Xora's tower... *smirks slightly to Steel* No two day ritual needed. Never met her though... Am I likely to be able to meet with her if I pop out of a tree and demand to see her? Or maybe one of you who know her can give me a letter or token or something so she'll know I'm not just a random crazy druid yelling outside her tower.

*Pallena is focused on the vial - she takes the time to roll her eyes at Tralek's suggestion, but does not look away* That anxious to give the thing to people who probably have less ability to deal with the thing than we do, in a place where it can do more harm? Like it or not, this is our responsibility, and we can't just hand it off willy-nilly.

*she stares at the vial a while longer*

Right. Steel, Tralek... the vial and the bindings themselves have some magicking on it - I can't really tell what, but I'd guess there's at least some shielding magic... just probably not strong enough. Can you tell if that is the case, and if so, would it work better to strengthen that, rather than create a shield out of whole cloth?

*She turns to the group as a whole*
If our group isn't prepared to deal with this, let's figure out who would be. I've heard Xora's name mentioned. How about Moraken? Maybe some of those Lucindites who deal in twisted magic... thoughts?

Quote from: RollinsCat

*//V= pi(r squared)(h) = 3.14(4)(10) ft cubed * ~62 lbs/ft cubed weight of water (estimated).  I haven't used high school math since starting my career but trust this game to make me whip out the Pocket Ref...

//Andrew did not do his math right. If the cylinder is 2 feet wide, the radius is one. Thus V= pi(r squared)(h) = 3.14(1)(10)(62.4)= 1960 lbs. Since 1 stone = 14 lb, the cylinder would weigh 140 stone... so his estimate of thousands of stone is off by a bit

edit: yes Gil, I did.

*to Gel'larian and Gunder* Haven't the foggiest idea where the place is, or what we'll find if we go there - that hasn't been decided yet. Zahid's a desert guy, ask him if he knows where the oasis in these parts is. Or send a couple scouts. *shrugs*

*Pallena then turns to Steel and Tralek, and tries to add her magical skills to the mix if possible*

Ask A Gamemaster / Re: Reason for Staff Sizes
« on: March 04, 2011, 01:00:04 pm »
My question was really going to the mechanics, rather than the RP (I mean, let's face it, the RP reasoning behind a lot of equipment is kinda shaky) - and I want to be clear, I'm not trying to say its a bad suggestion or anything like that, just trying to elicit something more concrete from you to support your suggestion.

Ask A Gamemaster / Re: Reason for Staff Sizes
« on: March 04, 2011, 12:20:12 pm »
Well, playing a different sized character comes with benefits and penalties. Your halfling can't use quarterstaffs, my giant can't use wands. So, before the feasibility of the change is considerer, why do think the change should be made?
I grant you, I don't know the difference in stats between the various stats, but my guess is the ones based on the quarterstaff are made that way for balance reasons (since medium creatures can't use them and a shield), so there's that, as well.

Ask A Gamemaster / Re: Reason for Staff Sizes
« on: March 04, 2011, 10:03:38 am »
Some staffs' base item is "quarterstaffs" (bigger) and some staffs are "magic staffs" (smaller) - if that answers your question.

A rather short giant comes to the shrine in the Brechs with a load of materials. He requests that they be sent to the Horn giants who are fighting against the cult, if they can use them, and if not, that the gold be used to buy them materials that are useful.

20 copper chain shirts
2 copper banded mail
1 copper scale mail
3 bronze shields
1 iron shield
3 iron helmets
2 platinum helmets
1 copper full plate
4 ingots of gold
1 iron chain shirts
Donated via Grannoch donation
total donation value = painfully small for that much metal.

With the understanding that your motives are to donate the true unless fancy strikes you, I will bid 40,000 true given to you, or 80,000 (//donation, not lens value) true's worth of goods donated in your name to the war effort.
